hunltsman, the former ambassador to china he will served during the first two years of the obama administration. mr. ambassador, mr. governor, thank you. vice president's language specifically chosen, deeply concerned. is that strong enough? >> well, i think that's appropriate terminology. it was spoken in tokyo where coordinating a lot of what goes on in the region with our ally, japan, and also with korea to some extent is absolutely critical at this point. and the language used was appropriate given the circumstances. now it will all play out in beijing as he meets with the new leader of china who he got to know on a personal level when they were vice presidents together. she served as vice president before becoming president of china. so they have a preexisting relationship. it is actually quite unusual for the head of china to accord this amount of time to the vice president of the united states. so he's giving him a private dinner. he spent two hours with him in a by lateral meeting. all of that presumably is taking us in a direction that defines some parameters around the

, marjorie, a former consultant to the obama campaign. thanks for joining us this morning. marjorie, i think most people understand in a bad economy a lot of people trying to live off fast food worker wages very tough, sympathetic to the idea of raising their wages. when workers get too expensive businesses replace workers. so we will see automated ordering, won't we, at fast food places? >> look, in order to raise any kind of salary you're obviously going to -- or any kind of wage you're going to have to change the business model a little bit. it means things will cost a little more, there will have to be a shift in the workers. you have to look at the long-term outcome. you pay workers more in the long run, end up with more americans which can spend pore money which grows businesses and our economy having these low wage workers puts on our systems like social security and medicaid, we end up paying almost $900 billion to bank tellers alone, low wage bank tellers, to subsidize their living. we pay for it one way or the other. >> that's an interesting point, michael. what's your response? in

the president of the united states, bram -- barack obama. >> thanks for everybody out there who cares deeply about this issue. monica's story is important because for all the day-to-day fights here in washington around the affordable care act, it's stories like hers why we took on this fight in the first place. r too long, working families were more vulnerable to the angst yites of today's economy than a broken health care system. we took up the fight because we believe that in america, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because somebody in their family or they got sick. we believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kid's table or taking them to see a doctor. we believe we are a better country than a country where we allow every day 14,000 americans to lose their health care coverage or where tens of thousands of americans die because they didn't have health -- out of re oup pocket costs drove people into poverty. we thought we were better than that and that's why we took this on.
